SEATTLE, May 13, 2021 First Choice Health (FCH), a forward-thinking alternative to traditional health insurance, has announced the hire of Troy Williams as its Vice President of Health System Partnerships. In his new role, Williams will help lead FCH’s efforts in creating partnerships with clinically integrated networks (CINs) aimed at making health care more accessible and affordable for individuals in a growing number of states.
Troy Williams previously served as the Vice President of Employer Solutions for Vanderbilt University, which is regarded nationally as an innovator of health services. At Vanderbilt, he was responsible for the school’s statewide clinically integrated network (CIN) product as well as partnering with Aetna, UnitedHealthcare and Cigna. Prior to Vanderbilt, Troy worked for GE Healthcare and Unisyn, where he was the Vice President of Service Sales.
“Troy Williams is perfect for this role because he understands how to message the value of clinically integrated networks to health systems, brokers and employers,” said FCH CEO Jaja Okigwe. “Troy Williams experience with Vanderbilt will help First Choice Health open doors to provider systems who may not know about us, and we look forward to the results he’ll bring to our organization.”
“Throughout my career, I’ve examined different ways for providers and employers to collaborate, looking at goals and incentives from each perspective and ultimately providing better value in healthcare delivery,” Troy Williams said. “This mission aligns perfectly with the work First Choice Health has been doing with clinically integrated networks, and I’m eager to join this initiative that will really show a tangible difference for members.”
Having already established itself as the market leader in forging successful partnerships with hospitals and health systems to deliver provider-led products to commercial populations, the 100% provider-owned FCH has homed in on the delivery of exceptional health care products to the employer market in the Northwest, Mountain West and the Great Plains.
